Assessment accommodation

As a result of the global pandemic, OSFI employees are currently working from home. Should the current telework environment no longer apply, and contingent on the operating model adopted by OSFI, you may be required to report into and work onsite from the Toronto or Ottawa Office. As our telework arrangements are evolving, we encourage you to apply.

On October 6, 2021, the Government of Canada announced details of its plans to require vaccination across the federal public service.
• https://www.canada.ca/en/treasury-board-secretariat/news/2021/10/backgrounder-covid-19-vaccine-requirement-for-the-federal-workforce.html

As per OSFI’s Policy on COVID-19 Vaccination, employees must attest to their vaccination status. The requirement for employees to be fully vaccinated applies whether they are teleworking, working remotely or working on-site. This is a condition of employment and it applies to indeterminate (permanent), determinate (term), casual, and student hiring. Should you reach the point in the selection process where it is necessary to verify terms and conditions of employment, then a human resources representative will contact you in order to complete an attestation.

Achieving a representative and diverse workforce has been identified as an organizational need for OSFI and may be applied at any time during this appointment process. If this criterion is used, only those who have indicated that they are members of the specified designated group(s) will be considered. As such, first consideration for an appointment may be given to candidates who self-declare as belonging to one of the four designated employment equity groups (Persons with a disability, Aboriginal people, Members of a Visible Minority, or Women).

In order to self-declare, please ensure to check off the appropriate box within the online application under the Employment Equity section. We encourage you to consult theses links to learn more about employment equity and self-declaration:
